Wimbledon 2017: Murray and Djokovic out; ruthless Federer cruises into semis

Defending champion and world number one Andy Murray appeared hampered by injury as he was knocked out of Wimbledon in the quarter-finals by Sam Querrey on Centre Court on Wednesday.

Querrey, 29, won 3-6 6-4 6-7 (4-7) 6-1 6-1 to become the first American man to reach a Grand Slam semi-final since Andy Roddick at Wimbledon in 2009, reports BBC.

Murray, 30, led by a set and a break but the Briton lost 12 of the last 14 games as he struggled physically.

Second seed Djokovic needed to win the title to return to the top of the rankings, but an elbow injury saw him pull out in the second set of his quarter-final against Tomas Berdych.

Roger Federer maintained his bid for a record eighth Wimbledon title as he moved into the last four with a 6-4 6-2 7-6 (7-4) win against Milos Raonic.

Federer, 35, made short work of beating last year's runner-up with a trademark display on Centre Court as he won in his 100th singles match at Wimbledon.

He will now play Tomas Berdych in Friday's semi-final after Novak Djokovic retired with an injury.

With Nadal, Murray also out, Federer is a huge favourite to take the title.

American Sam Querrey will play Croatia's Marin Cilic in the other semi-final.
